rainy sunday

it's raining
just hard enough to be able to hear the drops on the roof 
and for it to make the puddles dance

 I stood outside under the eaves waiting for them to come in

 and get something to eat
before the rain gets too hard
but they didn't want to get wet!!!
I could hear them all around in the trees

 and then in a flash of red
he swooped down and was off before I even knew it
the cardinal
the Mr.

 I was humming
raindrops keep falling on my head
as I put out some fresh seed
and I heard the familiar sound of the
mourning doves
to find one sitting on the wire above me

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.

Chinese Proverb

and because breakfast is being served

Cardinals look absolutely beautiful birds - as you know we get nothing really that compare to those here in Old Blighty.

We've actually had a sunny (but cold) day today - guess where I spent it? You got it - out in the garden! I have weeded like a woman possessed and been spreading my chicken poo pellet fertilizer around the veg bed and flower beds in the hope that things grow beautifully this year. AND, I got all those plants I bought the other day planted in their new homes. Hoping we get more of the same weather tomorrow - I want to be out again!! :) xx
